Faster Radeon 7970 SKU possible

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Much higher than 1GHz


AMD is playing with the idea of a faster Radeon HD 7970 chip, that would probably end up with a new brand, if not only Radeon HD 7970 OC edition.

The chip can easily go over 1000MHz and some products in closer to 1200MHz are also possible and AMD is thinking about doing it. Several things indicate that the company is working on a faster version and second wave of overclocking products, but it has not been decided when and at what speed and brand they come out.

AMD graphics partners will make their own overclocking cards, but at a later date when AMD gives them the green light. AMD could time the launch to compete with Nvidia’s Kepler when it comes out. We will keep our eyes open for new products but the usual overclocking suspects are working on 1000MHz+ Radeon HD 7970 cards as we speak.

d00d where have you been? A 6990 is faster than a 590... Dual GPU performance crown already belongs to AMD.

What's wrong, 6990 is faster than GTX590 so what part is trolling?

Stating facts is not trolling. I think you are confused.

AMD, Intel, etc is paying Rambus for its patents only Nvidia are not.

huh, by april amd might have a big OC. they also should have way better drivers, charlie says the GCN drivers are really raw now. anyways, together that's a big deal.

you misunderstood my comment. I know they have the fastest duel card but havent had the fastest single card since X19xx series

Uhm the 5800? It was the fastest for quite some time before 480 came, and even then it was still the "better" choice of the two. I know what you mean you mean single GPU and not single card, as technically 6990 and 590 are single cards.
